Freight train moves at constant speed & does not stop whilst delivering goods Curtailing Global Food Inflation and making accessible per
Curtailing Global Food Inflation and making accessible perishable food commodities from distant geographies:
The engine is at the back of the train. Between the first and the second compartment will be an expandable and contractible metal strip that will expand and push the first compartment ahead of the rest of the train as it approaches the first destination. The rate at which it will be pushed and the distance will be based on the standard time required to unload the container in the compartment and constant speed at which the train moves. The container is unloaded as the rest of the train approaches the first compartment with the metal contracting. Once the container is unloaded the second container is rolled on to the first compartment while the metal strip pushes the first compartment ahead. The unloading can happen on wheels on to the platform so that the speed can be optimized without spending much on the length of the metal strip. This process continues until the final destination and at the final destination the back engine is swapped so that the train can be loaded and move in the opposite direction.
* Export of perishable goods/food items a vast geography
* Reducing food inflation by virtue of distribution innovation
* Freeing road transport, this will translate to cost savings on fuel
* Does not even need a motor man if moving on a mono rail track
